Darnell's Night

Finally! Darnell McDonald, called up from the minors earlier in the day, hit a pinch-hit two-run homer to tie the game in the eighth (top photo) and won it with an RBI single in the ninth (2nd photo). That snapped a five game losing streak, gave the Fenway crowd something to cheer about and gave me some good pictures. Welcome to Boston Darnell!

Dispatch from Minneapolis

The Red Sox faced the Twins yesterday in the first-ever game at the new Target Field. I never visited the Metrodome, but every one I talked to was delighted with the improvements and the prospect of watching baseball the way it was meant to be watched-outdoors.
Sadly (for me, not the fans) the Jon Lester and the Sox sputtered right from the start and lost another one.
